Three Gaps: Middlebury, Lincoln and Appalachian
Addison County is a biker’s dream come true. The terrain ranges from flat, open expanses along the lake to rolling roads dotted with dairy farms. But the county’s most challenging ride is over its three — count ’em, three — Green Mountain gaps: Middlebury, Lincoln and Appalachian. It’s a grueling ride — great training for a triathalon. If you get too hot, you can take a dip in any of the rivers that run alongside the roads, especially at Bristol Falls and under the bridge in East Middlebury.
